Project Report | May 1, 2017
Thank You: You're Making a Difference

Thank You! Another Rainforest property has been rescued in the Daintree.

Thanks to your support the 28th block of rainforest has been rescued in the lowland Daintree Rainforest as part of the growing Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor

Lot 33 Cape Tribulation Road, Kimberley is the latest threatened rainforest property in the Daintree to be saved by Rainforest Rescue supporters following a successful appeal over Christmas. Lot 33 is important as it is the fourth property Rainforest Rescue supporters have saved as part of the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor. This new and growing protected area connects upland Daintree National Park and World Heritage Area through to Swamp Forest Nature Reserve and lowland rainforest. Our next step is to put a legal covenant on the property to strip all development rights from the land to protect it forever.

The property shares one boundary with the recently rescued Lot 32 and another with Lot 29 - which then backs onto National Park. The announcement follows the protection of the Chris Bennett Reserve - situated across the Cape Tribulation Road from the other three properties. All three rainforest blocks saved in the last 10 months were in the Top 5 priority list identified by Rainforest Rescue for their high biodiversity value and connectivity. 

It's wonderful to see friends of the rainforest rallying together to rescue vulnerable habitat. By targeting four properties in a high biodiversity area we've managed to create a permanent corridor for wildlife - linking upland and lowland Daintree rainforest.   

Thank you for helping us Protect Rainforests Forever.

Help plant a rainforest

If you’re in Queensland this month our next community tree planting day will be on May 13th up in the Daintree: save the date for your diary. We're doubling our target from last year and are looking to plant 2,000 seedlings over the morning planting. Visit rainforestrescue.org.au for more information and to register your interest in coming along.
